K is 5 months

K turned 5 months today.  I won't know her weight until her appointment next Tuesday, but it should be 13 pounds, something ounces.  K is continuing to wean herself off the formula and is taking 5-6 ounces a day now.    She's still in her size small prefold diapers (hopefully for a little bit longer) but she moved up on the rise on her flips.  She's still in her 3-6 month clothes, and we probably have a while before we need to move up.

She's moves like crazy and generally won't stay still long enough to practice sitting, although she can balance with one hand and grab stuff.  She's not crawling yet, but she does move by scooting (shoving her head down, sticking her bottom in the air, and usually falling to the side) and rolling both ways.  She become very interested in toys (and things she shouldn't play with), and she has a zebra lovey.  We've been taking lots of walks in the M.aya Wra.p (especially at nap time) now that it's under 100.  It's actually pretty pleasant most days, weatherwise.

She's still not napping great, but she is occasionally sleeping longer than 30 minutes.  She seems to be teething, but we'll see on that.  She is quite social and loves her daddy so much.


  1. Hey, I think you need to post a 5 month pic with this update! :) Glad she is doing well. I wouldn't worry too much about the weight, all of my nephews started out small and they are all fine. The youngest only weighed 17 lbs when he turned 1. Just a tiny guy! :)

  2. So happy to hear the update. She sounds like so much fun!

  3. Happy five months, little girl! Hope things are getting better for mama and baby.
